30 Quebec Adventures You Gotta Go On Before You Turn 30

Living in Quebec as a young person has never been so great! Even though we might experience some questionable politics at times, summer is the time to shake that all off and enjoy what our beautiful province has to offer!

For many of us, the looming 30s are a reality that we don't want to deal with. Even if you just turned 18, you cannot fight the ravages of age. So why not experience all you can before you have to get a real job, get married, and have kids? 

MTLBlog brings you an essential list of 30 Quebec adventures you must go on before you're 30. We have something for everything — from nature journeys, to thrill rides, and even a music festival, we've got it all!
